IBM Career Mentoring Scheme

Applications are now open

Exclusively for first-year undergraduates

The IBM mentoring scheme is a programme designed to provide you with invaluable insight into a career area that interests you. As a first year undergraduate at the University of Portsmouth, you have the opportunity to develop your confidence and key skills to prepare you for your graduate career, regardless of degree discipline.

There is no other company like IBM and there is no business professional like the IBMer who are experts in technical and business fields. IBM creates advanced technology to change how clients work. And through them, IBMers change how the world works.

The Scheme

Applications are open from 16 November to 29 November 2020. The programme will then start on Wednesday 13 January 2021 with a welcome virtual session to give you all the information you need. You must attend this session.

The scheme will then run until the end of May 2021.

You will have monthly one hour virtual meetings with your mentor to increase your awareness about employability, the general recruitment process, key competencies employers are looking for and learn from your mentor’s personal experience.  

Quotes from previous IBM Career Mentoring Scheme participants:

  • “ Really increased my confidence and really helped me in thinking about future career paths.”
  • “Had a great relationship with my mentor, she helped me through a lot more than just thinking about my future employment.”
  • “My mentor questioned me to push me in the right direction concerning future career paths.”

Apply now by completing the online application form.

Places are limited and this is a competitive process, completion of the application does not guarantee you a position.  

Please note: this is a virtual scheme due to the Covid-19.
